enough to say the president and his people did a lousy job rolling out the health care law. it's not enough to say they turned in their work sloppy. no, the screaming you hear now is liar, liar pants on fire. it's an escalation of the old refrain the president's not who he says he is. nobody knew him in school, went the donald trump rant. he's not from here. now comes the charge the president's health care law is not on the level. that the president didn't just fail to get it right the first time, he's a liar. and on benghazi, he's something else they say. howard fineman and sam stein are both with "the huffington post" and both msnbc contributors. ted cruz's trail buddy has taken it to new heights. during a hangout yesterday, the texas senator used the issues of benghazi and the affordable care act to accuse the president of something truly sinister. let's listen. >> i think the current administration has taken lying to a new level. to me that's one of the most aggravating thing about what's happening in washington these days. particularly about this administration. which is a l

has become law and is a real thing in people's lives, brian made this point. when there are people who have signed up on the aca website and have actual health insurance the zeal for repeal will be greatly diminished because it will be taking away health care from people who now have it. >> you would think that, but that would make you living in a reality-based reality, and that's not -- look, here is the thing. the republicans had a gift for the last month or so, because they could take -- first of all, they were in the political dumpster after the shutdown. they were also in the doldrums, they had no other thing to offer. repeal and then what. all these things in the affordable care act people liked, kids staying on their parents plans loeg longer, getting rid of bars for pre-existing conditions, they only make sense if you have an individual mandate. republicans know that's why they invented the individual mandate. now all of a sudden they have this gift. they can attack the website and impugn the whole policy because the website didn't work. suddenly they can't do that no more.

, the court declined to hear appeals by amazon and overstock.com to throw out a new york state law forcing them to collect sales tax even though they don't have a physical presence in that state. c-net news maggie is joining us to explain what it means for all of us who shop online. does the supreme court's refusal to hear this case about the new york law open the door for other states to start collecting sales tax from online purchases too? >> what it will probably do is some states may feel that they can pass some laws that will do this, as well. right now, not every state that has sales tax is collecting that on online purchases. and some states have passed these laws and some haven't yet. >> explain that. it depends on what state you live in in terms of how online taxing works. >> exactly. what's interesting here is in new york state, for example, they did pass, they were one of the first to pass a law that you would have to have sales tax collected but then in illinois, for example, they passed a similar law and that state supreme court threw out that law. and so now you have

who passed a pay equity law walk into a bar -- okay, you see where i'm going with this. short of bringing about world peace before he leaves office, the affordable care act will loom large in the president's legacy, as the singular accomplishment of his two terms. and now following the relaunch of a new and improved and fully operational healthcare.gov website, the president is not only owning it, but doubling down. and putting a bright spotlight on the obama in obama care. this week, the white house announced that it is going to be all aca, every day, from now until december 2rd, enrollment deadline for coverage on january 1st. starting with the president himself, who has been pulling his best, you know, hustling almost every day this week, to make the hard sale on the affordable care act. this was his pitch on tuesday. >> i'm going to need some help in spreading the word. i need you to spread the word about the law, about its benefits, about its protections, about how folks can sign up. tell your friends, tell your family. do not let the initial problems with the website discou

other family members for change to this country's laws. but so little has happened. obviously this has been a year of great loss for you, but also great frustration, mark? >> no. actually, i can't say frustration, chris. and i don't even think -- i don't like to think i'm fighting. i think we're trying -- i'd like to think i'm engaged in an effort and i'm approaching this with an open heart and mind to find real solutions and to work together with folks. >> where are those solutions, do you think? i mean, we had such high hopes last april. a background check bill supported by the president then failed. i know you must have seen this new poll. 49% of americans now support stricter laws. down from april and obviously from january just after the shooting. what do you think has happened? >> well, it's important to note, chris, that the umbrella figure of stricter laws is not specific to what we're talking about. i think most folks can agree on criminals and folks that are criminally insane shouldn't have firearms. and we're not about gun control, we're about gun safety. sandy hook promises

the laws there and how these investigations work. this seems to boil down to a he said, she said here and an incredible length of time between when the attack happened and now. we're waiting to hear more on why charges will not be filed. legally, what were we looking at here? >> well, he said, she said cases where sexual assault is alleged do get prosecuted and often lead to convictions. what's different here was you had that start then stop then start again timeline. there was some inconsistencies in some of the accounts given by the alleged victim. so at the time the state attorney was looking at the case, it was, is this something where there's a significant likelihood of a conviction? i think a lot of prosecutors would look at everything that we've seen in recent times and say this would have been a very tough case to get a conviction. he may have made the right decision. >> you refer to the timeline. let's see if we can put it up. december 7th, the alleged sexual assault was reported. this was december of last year. january 2013 the accuser identified winston to police. at the ti

mixture of we need to reach for ideals but laws -- principles chiseled into law. he talked about the need to accommodate your opponents, enemies, as mandela has done and saying it's okay to make compromises. yet at the same time stick to core principles like dealing with racial inequality and economic inequality. those are the sort of fundamental pillars of this presidency and at least how he views his own presidency. whether he lives up to that, whether he fails to reach for that is another question. he's given us this road map in these big speeps and they are very few and far between. >> i feel like the white house has been playing for a long time a lot of defense. in the last week the income inequality speech, question of fairness, fair deal for american worker, what kind of country we want to be. the scenes of his presidency we first heard at the democratic national convention echoed some eight, nine years later at the passing of nelson mandela. i think it is a really important reminder, not just for the global community but for americans here about why he's president and why

changed laws, but he also changed hearts. >> mandela spent 27 years in prison, but was big enough to seat his jailers in the front row of his inauguration. today was about remembering a great man. and that's what makes today's attacks on the president seem so small. joining me now are richard wolffe and goldie taylor. thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> richard, let me start with you. on a day when we're honoring a man like mandela, don't these attacks seem particularly small? >> well, reverend, they do seem totally small, but there's something worse than that. even if you don't want to respect the message of mandela and what he represents and how the president talked about him today, there's a fundamental misunderstanding i think for someone who is supposed to be serious like john mccain about national security. we shook hands, presidents, great presidents of this country shook hands with even more brutal dictators for the soviet union. fdr was a friend of joe stalin. we were useful when -- ronald reagan, john mccain's personal hero shook hands wit

employment law project estimates another 850,000 americans would run out of state supplemented benefits in the first three months of next year. >>> a white house report estimates 3.6 million more americans could lose their benefits by the end of 2014. so with little time left, lawmakers must act urgently and make it a critical priority if it is to deal with the budget agreement. the debt -- the debate over extending benefits could threaten negotiations over the budget, however, last week as democrats dug their heels in, over an extension, house speaker john boehner suggested he would entertain the argue but argued responsibility lies with the white house. >> if the president has a plan for extending unemployment benefits, i'd surely entertain looking at it. but the real focus ought to be creating a better environment for our economy and creating more jobs for the american people. that's where the focus is, not more government programs. >> we have a responsibility as american people, people who have played by the rules and lost their job through no fault of their own. and need these benefit

november 18 to the 20th. will current problems facing the new health care law be solved? 54% do believe it will be solved. that's a level of credibility and belief in the system that presumably is very important. but let me ask you, congressman van hollen, we have seen delays in the still of the night. here are some of the headlines. the wednesday before thanksgiving now saying small businesses will have extra time before they can actually start signing up for health care benefits. should the individual mandate be delayed? this is the big part of health care. should that be delayed if you want this to work as well as it can? >> as you know, they already moved the deadline twice. they moved it to the end of march for the original mandate. we've extended this to december 23rd for people to sign up. we need to adapt. we need to make sure we address problems as they come up and try to work on them on a bipartisan basis. mike says it's not political. in my pocket, eric cantor issued this playbook against obama care the other day. they're not trying to work with us on these issues. yes, there ar

sidewalk they walked on, certainly they couldn't vote. the law enforcement was directed right at them, the beatings that went on was certainly awful at that time. currently we had growing in the world the liberation movement. the soviet union collapsed in 1989, we had the rise of poland, you had the velvet revolution going on czechoslovakia. china was beginning to change but they had economic movement like never before, so south africa was really at the tail end of liberating people, not only people of color. that gave idea to nelson mandela stepping out on the stage and being who he was. he just didn't measure up, he exceeded everyone's expectations. >> paul gigoe, for a lot of conservatives at the time, including the reagan administration, they looked somewhat askance at mandela. you wrote the following: the bulk of his adult life, nelson mandela was a failed marxist revolutionary and leftist icon. then in his seventies, he had the chance to govern. he chose national reconciliation over reprizal. but it was that formal piece. >> it was before the communist berlin wall fell, and we w
